Why Rick Moranis Won't Be In The Ghostbusters Game

Illustration for article titled Why Rick Moranis Wont Be In The Ghostbusters Game

While the upcoming Ghostbusters game will star many of the real film's principal characters – including, crucially, all four Ghostbusters, William Peck and the Stay Puft marshmallow man – not everyone thought signing on was a good idea. Sigourney Weaver, for one. And Rick Moranis is another. But why'd Rick say no? Not like he's exactly busy at the moment. Sierra's Ben Borth:

He made so much money off of Honey I Shrunk The Kids that he retired. He just doesn't want to work anymore.

Foxstar loves Bashcraft

@Salen:That's what I said. I don't understand the demand for him and there's been infighting for years among the GB fans on how his strapping on of a Proton Pack was the low point of #2.

He was funny but not that funny. It's good to see a actor who seems to have taken the money he made from two hit movies and set things up so that he doesn't need to pimp himself out on late night infomercials and crappy B-movies and TV series.

@DaftDethMonkey:Yes he will. I'm not sure if he's doing it out of love of the series or he just needs work, but whatever he does, i'm glad for it.

@Shiryu:He was in the three movies and that seemingly was enough. Plus he's been in other movies over his life and was smart with his savings.
